as remembered by her family
Nettie Rozdeba, MOM, was born May 16,1934 to George and Dora Trynchuk by Rossman Lake. She was the youngest sister to Matt, Anne, and Mary. Mom, like any other children who grew up in that era, spoke of the many challenges, walking the miles to and from school irregardless of weather conditions, chores, responsibilities, poverty. Mom also learned to appreciate the gifts of nature, the wild fruits and berries, mushrooms and the many other foods that nature supplies.
On Nov 2, 1952, she married Joe Rozdeba. They farmed together on the farm by Elphinstone where Bob and Darlene and girls reside. To talk about Mom from this date forward, you also talk about Dad. For together they created a home full of love, warmth, hospitality, and music for their two children, Bob and Pat. The doors were always opened to all their nephews and nieces, who each had a special place in their hearts, to relatives, friends or stranded strangers.
Food miraculously appeared to feed anyone extra that happened to drop in. She loved to cook and bake. Mon was noted for her delicious meals, desserts, pastries, and presentation. An all time favourite was her cinnamon buns that she made in abundance for her family. Mom was noted for her detail and being meticulous in everything she did.
Mom loved to garden which was always bountiful. She had a green thumb and anything that looked like it wasn't going to survive, give it to her and it flourished under her care.
Joe and Nettie retired to the town of Shoal Lake. For a number of years she worked for Home Care and gave a helping hand where ever she could.
She devoted her life to her family, wearing the many hats that a mother and wife wear. Always knowing when she was needed without a word being said.
It does not matter how old or young- if you think you are prepared or not--- there are no words to describe the feeling of loss. She will always be MOM, and in our hearts, Moms and Dads are never to get sick, and never leave us to transition to the next realm.
To ease our own hearts, if we think of this next step as being the rainbow at the end of a storm --- to be taken to peace, calm and everlasting life, the ultimate gift of God- our hearts are calmed. She is loving remembered and survived by:
Son Bob, Darlene - Candice, Melanie, Kristen
